Sunday brunch, with a glass of wine, in an elegant environment, with a view of yhe forks, followed by a tour of the Gallery -- a very nice way to start the day. We come back, often!

If your looking for a great brunch head to the River Room. My wife and I have eaten there a half dozen times and it's always GREAT! The view of the Thames river is a added bonus.

GREAT FOOD!!!! So I ordered a teeny bit more to go! The salmon latkes are amazing and so is the lakes Caesar! I overheard someone saying the pumpkin ravioli is to DIE for.

One of the best places in London for Sunday brunch with lovely views across the Thames river. Excellent, creative menu, beautiful presentation and always delicious. Well trained attentive (but not overly) staff. Couple with a visit to the museum for a well spent few hours.

We went for father's day and the brunch was good. There were a few dishes that were better than others. The crepes, for example, were lacking seasoning and were disappointing, however the crab cakes and eggs with hollandaise sauce were good. The brunch seemed like...More

This is a lovely, quiet spot to go for lunch. The view is nice making it appealing to hold an event there. Today for lunch, the service was slow with less than 15 people in the restaurant. We ordered a bottle of wine. The waiter...More
